Club New York

Lyrics

Get shot up like Shyne, that's on my head
I'm big like Diddy

About

Back in the late 90s, Club New York was one of the hottest clubs in the city, even though it sounds like some sort of fictional club in the direct-to-DVD Night at the Roxbury 2

Then, one wintry evening in 1999, Diddy, J-Lo, and Shyne were at the club when all hell broke loose. Guns were pulled, women were shot in the face, and when all the dust settled, Shyne and Diddy were on trial at Manhattan Criminal Court

Diddy was acquitted, while Shyne was sent to prison for 9 years. Check out what eyewitness and rap star in his own right Fredro Starr had to say about the night of the shooting at the now-defunct club
